FCC members support open Internet rules for mobile

Last week, at a congressional forum on net neutrality held in Sacramento, FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn asked, “What is the impact on a consumer whose mobile broadband may be her only access to broadband? If we have lower standards for mobile, will providers make clear that the experience may be different?”

Clyburn’s comments were presaged by ones from FCC Chair Tom Wheeler at the CTIA Wireless Association earlier in September. Wheeler said: “One of the constant themes on the record is how consumers increasingly rely on mobile broadband as an important pathway to access the Internet. The basic issue that is raised is whether the old assumptions upon which the 2010 rules were based match new realities.”
